BOCA starts Know Your Rights Trainings


After hearing countless stories about youth members being stopped and harassed by police, Bicyclists Organizing for Community Action (BOCA), the youth activism program of Bikes Not Bombs, worked with lawyers from the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts, National Lawyers’ Guild and law firm Jason & Fischer to develop a training on the responsibilities of cyclists to follow traffic laws and their legal rights when interacting with the police.

The Know Your Rights training is now built into the schedule for each of our Earn-A-Bike and Girls In Action programs and is offered in collaboration with a number of partner groups throughout Boston.
